Pragmatic choice

A new process for the pragmatic choice of wind models in complex terrain

The aim of this project is to develop a new industry relevant process for the selection of the most optimal wind model with the lowest computational effort and costs for the exact simulation of the flow conditions in complex terrain. This process will provide a decision support for modellers, e.g. for wind resource assessments, because the accuracy of the simulation has a big influence on the expected profitability.

This project is funded by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy, ewz, Enercon, ADEV and BKW and will be carried out together with Meteotest (beginning of 2019 to end of 2020). It is also part of a larger German project together with the Hochschule Esslingen and Stadtwerke Tübingen and funded by the DBU.
